I used to love 40oz to freedom. Then I turned 15.

I still have alot of their bootlegs. They are one of those bands that recorded so much music but only 1% of it is released.
Let's go to a motel. We don't have to do anything -- we could just swim.

I haven't read all these lists, but Weezer - Weezer; Weezer Pinkerton; Elliott Smith - XO; Elliott Smith - Either/or; should be on all lists, imo.

Agreed, though I think Figure 8's the best album of his...

Meh, Figure 8 sounds, although great, a little too over produced for the likes of E.S. I like E. most when it's just him and the guitar. X.O. or Kill rock stars are best in minez eyez...

Yeah, I could see how someone could say that.  I mean, it is very produced, but it has, what I think, are the most of the best songs of his career.  All of his albums have their great points.  All of his albums kind of have their own kind of sound.  It's just really sad that people tend not to listen to anything past Either/Or and XO (though both are great albums themselves).
